Joe Hanks calls Los Angeles home, and he may be soon lighting up Hollywood style if things continue the way they are.
Hanks, (15-0, 10KO) pot-shot his way past a willing yet limited opponent in Vili Bloomfield en route to his tenth professional stoppage inside four rounds. Hanks is a tall, long armed, well muscled heavy man who is quick with both hands and can throw solid punches.
Heavyweight Andy Ruiz, (7-0, 5KO) pummeled opponent Francisco Javier Diaz, scoring a knockdown off a right hand to end the first round, and again dropped Diaz midway through the second frame, and the fight was waived off at 1:08.
Ruiz is trained by Freddie Roach.
The night started out in knockout fashion as Indio, CA's Gabino Saenz notched his second knockout in as many fights over fellow Californian Jesus Adams; the official time was 2:45.
The crowd at the Honda Center is sparse, yet lively. Beers are in hand, fists are being thrown and ring card girls are keeping things interesting.
